B-Smooth B-Successful at Ringside 2014
On July 29, 2014, local boxers Bradley "B-Smooth" Hamil and Shawn "The Flurry" Murray of Boxing By Syd travelled to compete in the Ringside World Championships in Kansas City, Missouri.
The Ringside World Championships is the largest amateur boxing tournament in the world. It draws in athletes from around the world and provides a competitive opportunity for amateur boxers beyond compare. Over 1400 boxers, male and female, from age 8 up, competed in 6 rings. 1000 bouts took place over the 4 days.
Although Shawn Murray lost in his semi-final fight, Cambridge's Bradley Hamil, a 2014 Golden Gloves Champion, headed into the gold-medal bout undefeated.
"I have trained daily for several years, striving for improvement every day while balancing family, working full-time and finishing my law degree." says Hamil, who has lived and breathed boxing since childhood.
In the championship bout, Hamil faced Alexander Dedovets from Buffalo, NY. He won handily with a 4-1 majority decision.
"Bradley showed poise beyond his experience level and executed exactly what was asked of him," said coach, Syd Vanderpool. "That's what ultimately allowed him to win all 3 of his fights at Ringside. He remains undefeated."
